Poetry Isn't Dead!

Although I reviewed each of Rupi Kaur's poetry collections on the blog a few months ago, I wanted to share a few of my favourite poems from this wonderful poetress with you. I hope you enjoy the poems I've included in my faves, and I'd love you to share your own favourites with me in the comments!

November-December Book Haul!

I hate to alarm anyone, but this may be the last book haul post you see from me for a couple of months! I've put myself on a book buying ban that I hope to span 4 months - November, December, January and February. And come February, I plan to buy a lot less books than I'm reading every month. So although these posts will likely come back in the new year, they may be more infrequent than they have been lately! So sit back and enjoy my last book haul post for a while. Also featuring a few photos including my cat, who is forever judging me for buying more books!

A Day Out At The National Sealife Centre, Birmingham

Earlier this year, hubby and I took a week off together and went on a few day trips. One of these was to The National Sealife Centre, in Birmingham. And I took so many photos and videos, I just had to share some with you! So enjoy this photo/video heavy post.

Book Review: Mindhunter by John Douglas and Mark Olshaker

FBI Special Agent and expert in criminal profiling and behavioural science, John Douglas, is a man who has looked evil in the eye and made a vocation of understanding it. Now retired, Douglas can let us inside the FBI elite serial crime unit and into the disturbed minds of some of the most savage serial killers in the world.

The man who was the inspiration for Special Agent Jack Crawford in The Silence of the Lambs and who lent the film's makers his expertise explains how he invented and established the practice of criminal profiling; what it was like to submerge himself mentally in the world of serial killers to the point of 'becoming' both perpetrator and victim; and individual case histories including those of Jeffrey Dahmer, Charles Manson, Ted Bundy and the Atlanta child murders.

With the fierce page-turning power of a bestselling novel, yet terrifyingly true, Mindhunter is a true crime classic.

Guess who's back, back again, with another new haul post? And I've got to open this post with the cutest photo I've ever included in one of my haul posts, I think. I mean, just look...

Book Review: Fierce by Gin Phillips

The zoo is nearly empty as Joan and her four-year-old son soak up the last few moments of playtime. They are happy, and the day has been close to perfect. But what Joan sees as she hustles her son toward the exit gate minutes before closing time sends her sprinting back into the zoo, her child in her arms. And for the next three hours—the entire scope of the novel—she keeps on running.

Joan’s intimate knowledge of her son and of the zoo itself—the hidden pathways and under-renovation exhibits, the best spots on the carousel and overstocked snack machines—is all that keeps them a step ahead of danger.

November Goals!

How on earth is it November already? I just can't wrap my head around it, to be honest. The year has just flown by and now we're almost into 2019! 

I'm not going to recap on my October goals because everything went to hell. I was ill with the flu, and then an inner ear infection. And I just had zero motivation. But I'm going into November full of motivation to make the last two months of 2018 a great one! So here are my goals for this month...
